The Top Trends Among Construction Software Buyers

In 2013, Software Advice spoke to thousands of buyers evaluating new construction software. They’ve analyzed the results and published a report with some very interesting results.

The report uncovered the following key findings (among others):

  • 78 percent of buyers have no deployment preference, whereas most buyers in other industries tend to prefer Cloud-based systems.
  • The most frequently-cited reason for buying new software is increased efficiency, with 28 percent of the sample saying they hoped to achieve this benefit.
  • The top two requested applications were project management (33 percent) and estimating (24 percent).

Here’s a presentation highlighting the study results, kindly provided by Software Advice:
